    Gotta be honest, I found this game very interesting actually. Its not good, but it attracts me kinda like how Rise of the Triad does. Just one of those odd balls.


    Ditto. I remember it being one of the first games I played on my just upgraded Pentium 166mhz. I saw the rain, then that cubicule with the shaking window and papers on the desk and thought the game would blow my mind. I quickly realized it was just a Wolf-like maze game with lots of make up, but i still fire it up from time to time.

    That was in the times sprites were the only option.

    Now people downgrade models from modern games to sprites many times. Itīs not like your personal taste dictates the meaning of whatīs retro or whatīs not.

    I know for certain itīs not pouseury or whatever, because i envisioned with having something like this a few times. And it was for the sake of creating something that feels like old games did yet took advantage of new software and hardware.

    So:

    Modelling an enemy to then take 8 side lo-res pictures of it and then convert them to 8bits= retro
    Modelling an enemy and doing the 8bit lo-res convertion on realtime= poseury

    The potential to attract attention from plebs who enjoy delusional fan-wank? It's an interesting visual effect, and I can see it being put to good use in some creative fashion (maybe as a "pixel monster" in an otherwise normal world), but it's only pretending to "be retro". You don't need it to "be retro", and you can "be retro" better without it. Read the article I linked at the beginning of this thread.

    Pixels ≠ Retro.
    Pixels ≠ Retro.
    Pixels ≠ Retro.


    I did read the article, but i donīt agree with it.

    I have a different vision of whatīs retro and for such, this shader would be of great benefit. For that matter, everything we do prenteds to be retro too, since polymost and polymer are both polygonal engines which downgrade to run two and half dimentional maps. Retro is in short terms about the feel, nobody wants to input DOS commands to run a game, nor wait for a diskette to load for five minutes to then realize thereīs an error in the filesystem. You choose what takes you to it, and for me an enemy that moves smoothly, can be looked from up or down but still retains that pixelated print when you get close to it is indeed retro and in a good way.

    Nobody sees the potential here, which is a shame.

    But hey, Galileo was almost burned alive for thinking the way he did...

    It took me a while to figure out what the avatar was. I originally shot it too fast and then went to find the tile and giggled :P

    Hey, I saw something on Steam about you giving me a gift but the window was all black with only your name visible in blue. So, I'm not sure what you gave me but thanks for the appreciation!
